Hi I have some questions

I want to buy some lock nut joints from intercal but the selection is a bit confusing for me  :redface:

I have used a lock nut set from bearycheap a 30 mm size, I remenber that in the kit the disk and screw for the head was bigger.

I want to get disks of the same sizes of the kit, but the selection on intercal has diferent hole sizes, and I don't know wish hole size to pick or the size of screws, bolts and washers  :redface:

Also what is the difference in length of fabric 1/4 yard and 1/3 yard?

A yard and a metre, are roughly the same (3 inches shorter than a metre if that helps)

Here's a useful converter site I use quite often  It converts lengths/weights/measures and more

I think the people at Intercal would be happy to answer your questions:

A yard and a meter are easy for me...the metric system is very familiar but...I agree with those disc joints...very confusing!  sets, singles, bolts, cotter pins. washers...then there is the whole subject of whether or not to put felt inbetween them????   It could drive you nuts!  I don't want to ruin my expensive fur so I've started using the extremely strong snap on joints.  I have to hammer them on with a socket wrench over the stem but at least I understand the sizes and how they fit!

Just google for an online converter.  You can find many that will convert centimeters to inches.  Here's a good one.
I hope this helps.
